Wow, those look great to me! I may need some step by step lessons!

SilverFast has several videos for using their software. I found them very helpful.

Just an FYI

I have Silverfast, got it with the V850, went through it and never used it

Why?

The Epson software that comes with the scanner is much easier to use while covering off the basics like dust and scratch removal, color restoration, sharpening , etc. In addition it supports scanning all the neg sizes I had to deal with all the way up to 4 X 5

No doubt Silverfast is more fully featured but for my requirements, and I suspect for a lot of users, the Epson software does the job with less of a learning curve.

Thanks, I think the v850 is going to be more than I am willing to spend. I am thinking of something more in the 300.00 or less range if I can find something.
